throwback thursday {beginnings of typography stitching}

On Thursdays I pull from my years of archives and take a look back and where I’ve come as a stitcher and just reflect a little. Today’s look back is one of my first typography embroideries. Stitching words harkens back to the old samplers that women and children stitched back in the 1800’s and I like to think that my style of typography is continuing in that tradition…with a little modern twist.

from 2011: a little space themed typography:

the latest “typography” coming from my hands…

This has been on my hoop for the past 3 weeks and while it was fun to do I am not sad to see it done! I love how these big embroideries turn out, but man oh man they wear me out!

This was a second year anniversary gift for the client’s husband. The pink was requested to match their wedding colors; black and pink.

I also redesigned the original pattern with a different version of Scripture that she was looking for. I kind of like this redesign better! Isn’t that the way it works?!
